The mixture of comedy and drama in this series is well-balanced: the result is both funny and touching. Sometimes it can feel too slow, but never to the point where you would consider to stop watching. And you really shouldn't, because the ending is great and cries out for a second season, with new dynamics. The other main facet that keeps you watching are the two female leads: it's nice to see a grown-up Kelly Bundy in a totally different part, but for me the real standout is Linda Cardellini, still gorgeous at 44; her sweet, gentle, vulnerable, quirky Judy is probably one of my favorite female characters in a TV show ever. *** out of 4.
